Jese Rodriguez’s Paris Saint-Germain contract to contain anti-Barcelona clause – report

Real Madrid winger Jese is close to joining Paris Saint-Germain for £20 million with an interesting clause in his contract.

PSG, as reported by French daily L’Equipe (via AS), have agreed not to sell him in the future to Real’s fierce rivals Barcelona.

This coupled with the fact they initially wanted to loan him out and asking for a buyback clause, something PSG don’t want, speaks volumes about how highly rated he is despite finding it difficult breaking into Zinedine Zidane’s first eleven.

A graduate of Real’s academy he made his first-team debut under former boss Jose Mourinho and has to date made 94 appearances scoring 18 goals and creating a further 16.

Last season he’d feature in 38 matches with 28 of those coming in La Liga though he’d start in just seven.

PSG, now managed by Sevilla’s three-time Europa League winning boss Unai Emery, are hoping to make serious inroads in the Champions League.

Since their takeover in 2012 by Qatar Sports Investments PSG have won nine major pieces of domestic silverware including three league cups (Coupe de la Ligue), two French Cups (Coupe de France) and four successive Ligue 1 titles.

Jese had an 89% shot accuracy in La Liga last season.
